Lock an angle

Hi, thanks for all your help so far during my trial of your software. I have a question. Is it possible to lock a goal at a chosen angle? As I add goals, all the other goals move. I want to create four locked sections. Then add moving goals within the sections.

    Hi Helen

    Yes: you can lock the Importance of any goal (fix its slice size in the goal map) using the 'padlock' icon at the right of the Importance slider in the panel (see the attached screenshot).

    In any 'family' of neighbouring subgoals you always need to have at least one unlocked (otherwise you would not be able to add any new neighbours). So if you have locked all but one of a set of neighbours, the padlock will be disabled in the last one (you will see a warning popup if you mouseover it).

    All the rules regarding setting and locking Importance are described in detail in the Online Help (click the '?' button at top right of the Goalscape screen to access Help); and there is an Infopoint video about Importance (click the 'i' button at top right of the Goalscape screen to see where all the Infopoints are, then play any of them by clicking one of the blue 'i's). You may also wish to check out our full Tutorial video – it explains all the major functionality.

    If the above sources do not provide the information you need, you may be able to find some answers by searching the Public discussions on our customer forum (and, for technical issues, the Known Issues).

    And of course you can always post here again.
